Recently one of my favorite bloggers Stacey over at Conspicuous Style Interior Design, blogged about Open Floor Plans, and as I looked at mine and reflected about the first time I was introduced to the idea, I wasn’t much about it!
I remember peeking into a window of a home that was currently on the market for sale and unoccupied. Front the side light by the front door, I could see right to the kitchen counter bar. Which was open to the living room and dining room and thinking to myself, this would never work for me.
So I admit it, I now sing a different song and I come to love it. It has it pros and of course it’s cons. The Pro is I am always a part of what is going on around me, engaged in conversations, a part of the party and speaking of parties, the flow is absolutely perfect! I never have the feeling of being boxed in.
The Cons well, the noise coming from the kitchen doesn’t make it easy to watch a TV show. So when the family is watching the TV, forget about turning on the mixer to make cookies! Plus I am always reminded that there are dirty dishes to put into the dishwasher!
What I change anything about my home? No, I love the open floor plan, I love my Great Room! And yes, I do know that I am lucky, blessed and spoiled! I don’t take one minute for granted!
How do you feel about a Great Room with an Open Floor Plan?
Thanks for stopping by, I love to read your comments too!
